UTILITY EQUIPMENT DECEMBER 2018 • E&MJ 67 The MinCa 18A is also a multipurpose utility vehicle, which is offered by Paus with a number of different "superstructures." The range extends from the configuration as a transporter for personnel or material, as a fire brigade vehicle to ambulance equip- ment and combinations of superstructures. For coal operators, Paus supplies ex- plosion-proof vehicles, which ensure a reliable explosion protection for the us- ers. Some regulators require the engine temperatures of explosion-proof vehicles to not exceed 150°C. An extended cool- ing system is available that, depending on the version, cools the exhaust gases to 70°C, according to the company. Addition- al flame arresters on the exhaust and air intake lines as well as encapsulated elec- trical components (display, battery, head- lights, switches, etc.) also ensure greater safety. Paus integrates gas sensors into its vehicles to give a warning signal if defined gas concentrations are exceeded. The Paus vehicle portfolio also in - cludes LHDs, dumpers, scalers, graders and rock-crusher solutions. MacLean Celebrates 2 Production Milestones Two production milestone units were ready to roll off the line at MacLean En- gineering's Collingwood, Ontario, manu- facturing facility in November: the SL3 Scissor Lift No. 200 and BT3 Boom Truck No. 100, going to mines in Quebec and British Columbia, respectively. "We're known for our bolters, and increasingly, our battery electric fleet offer, especially in Canadian mining, so it's fitting that our two utility vehicle production milestones are units being shipped to mines in Canada," said Mac- Lean President Kevin MacLean. "We're confident that our utility vehicle pro- duct line offer of safety, performance, reliability and parts commonality will stand the test of time at home and abroad in the mining world." Eldorado Gold purchased the 200 th MacLean scissor lift for the Lamaque mine in Val d'Or, Quebec. This makes for a total of 15 MacLean machines on site, with five more on their way for 2019.
